Magic is a good hobbie, and it takes lots of time of practice
and is impossible to smoke while you practice, and you are going to be so focused practicing, that you won't want to do anything else... it also gives you something else to spend your money with... there are always new tricks coming out, and you are gonna always want them because they are sick normally... in the GOOD way!!
I love magic, and its my fav thing to do when I'm bored... time passes by fast, and I'm always focusing to get better... if you want, and she wants, I'll give you the email of this girl you can get more info... and it should be easyer cause you both are girls, and you can understand each other more
she's pretty comprehensive, and really nice
Just an idea
EDIT: I'm gonna look a thread someone once made in a magic forum about them wanting to be suicidal until they found out about magic and sleigh of hand... he says magic saved his life, and that now he's actually good at something... before he wasn't and everyone hated him, and he didn't have friends, and stuff... I'm gonna look it just for you
EDIT2: FOUND IT!!
How Magic Saved My Life
I told a small version of this story for Ians Magical Story contest. I thought i'de post the rest for everyone else. This is my story of life. Yes it is a story about magic but I have my life becuase of magic. I write this to thank each and every person I have learned an effect from. Everyone from someone who helped me with certain effects to their creators and teachers. There are far, far to many to name. So here we go...
Okay, about a year and a half ago I was a 12 year old that had no friends, no talents, no ambition. My whole life I had no friends. I am an overweight guy who is very shy and keeps to himself. I do not act weird around people I don't know or hardly know, I never let my hair down and youmust get to know me before you really see who I am. Now I don't know about you but where I am from that attitude and lifestyle just doesn't get it. But then I was about to turn 13 and could enter my church youth group. I am homeschooled so I don't have a school "Clique" or anything. I was really looking forward to making friend in this group and finally loving life. I turned 13..and had a magor wake-up call. I was there in a group of teens who cared nothing about you or about anyone but themselves. They didn't care whether you were happy or if you wanted to be friends with them. They had their friends..they didn't need any more. There were a few nice kids who tried to be my friends. But they were 4-5 years older then me..lot of good that does. I became friends with them but..it just wasn't the same.. I got into a dark place for a while..quite a while. People had thrown food at me, made me sit by myself for 5 hours going to the mountians..life was a chore to live. I hated myself andmy life. I wondered why life was even worth living..I jst went through the miserable motions of my life. I considered suicide..might have done it but I knew my family would be devestated. Life was over. I thought about runing away..making people see what they had done to me and what they had lost. I thought at times that if I died my family would be the only ones to show up.. I had nothing to live for.
Then this past January I went to a concert with my youth group (yes another 5 hour drive..) and saw music. I had always wanted to perform like that but didn't think I could. Then I remembered the old set of drums I had in my shop... I started playing. I took lessons, worked 3-4 hours everyday, finally I had something to live for. But I quickly learned that inmusic you must practise at least a year or more before you can perform. Now the only thing I was good at I couldn't do for a while...I started to get down again. Then I saw Criss Angel expose the lipstick/ash through hand trick. I realized how simple my life-long fasination (magic) was. I got a table magic book and then found Ellusionist. I looked past the "Disapointed faces of your peers" (My chem) and started into magic. I found something worth doing and living for. I found the veyr thing that saved my life. It was something I COULD do and soon. I worked hard atwhat I had and soon got my first actual "effect" Sinful by wayne houchin. I saw something I could do I saw something I loved become possible. I began my journey into magic.
Now, I am 14 and I am a drummer and magician. I live life happily now and with purpose. I have two arts that I love and use when I can. Life is worth living. Magic truly saved my life. Many thanskto Criss Angle and Wayne houchin for this..they started it.. Magic has Saved My life
But thanks to everyone..every magician alive or dead. You guys saved my life.. Thank you so much...and please do not even think about suicide..its a dark, dark road that only ends in a crash.
Thats my story and i'm sticking to it...
